Every Friday, I participate in a weekly public affairs roundtable program, Colorado Inside-Out, on Denver’s KBDI television, channel 12. Every summer we do a “time machine” episode. Last summer’s 1959 episode has been nominated for a regional Heartland Emmy award. I play Charleton Drizzelwhit-Koplowitz, book review editor of the Rocky Mountain News. In real life, my father Jerry Kopel worked at the Rocky Mountain News earlier in the decade (when his last name was Koplowitz), and among his jobs was book reviewing.
